In this era of Engineering, The question is resounding through many minds that look for alternatives, “I don’t want to do engineering, I am interested in computers, should I take BCA course?” While this question is certainly more common than thought, the answer isn’t a simple shake or nod of the head. To understand the answer one has to start from the very basic of the concepts.

What is Engineering?

Engineering can be described as the process of applying scientific knowledge. Of course, engineers make a living out of this skill that they are trained in over the course of 8 semesters. These professionals are trained to use cost efficient and practical ways to solve complex problems and implement smooth solutions. So, why is engineering such a popular course of education and profession with such a huge multitude?

The answer to this is quite simple: It enhances the creativity of a person and offers a salary that is highly paying and provides a financial stability. With that said, it is nevertheless, a good touchstone for technological intellect.

However, engineering isn’t the only answer to everyone who wants to study science and technology. Quite naturally, interest and aptitude can vary from one person to the other.

What is taught in computer engineering and BCA?

Computer Science

Computer Engineering is the study of hardware and software of computers. Therefore, a computer or software engineer is taught about electronic engineering, software design, and hardware and software integration. The average salary of a computer engineer is over 6 lacs per year.

 

 

 

Now, we move on to BCA. As we go through this section, we take into account the real essence of the question- I don’t want to do engineering, I am interested in computers, should I take BCA course? So far we have outlined engineering and its aspects with computers. Let’s turn to the Bachelor’s degree now.

Bachelor in Computer Application

BCA stands for Bachelor in Computer Application. The time taken for the completion of this course is 3 years which equates to 6 semesters. This course teaches the student computer languages and also enables the students to join software companies after graduation.

Remuneration

However, the job prospects are not shimmery at the beginning of the career with just a bachelor’s degree in computer application. The minimum salary could be 8000 rupees per month. However, as experience increases, the salary is bound to get better and may jump to 40,000 per month after 2 -3 years of experience in this field.  Moreover, for one to pursue BCA into graduation, he/she doesn’t have to have necessarily studied Science or Commerce in classes 11 and 12

A student of Arts is just as eligible for this Undergraduate course as his/her counterparts from other streams. The only stipulation for eligibility for this course turns out to be a 55% marks in the 12th-grade board exams.

  • The job profile of graduates with a BCA degree includes-
  • ?Cheif Information Officer-officers responsible for IT and computer systems supporting enterprise goals.
  • Computer programmer- creates the code for software application and operating systems.
  • Computer scientist-investigate technological topics like AI, robotics, and Virtual Reality.
  • Database administrator-planning and developing database.
  • Software publisher- publish software between developer and distributor.

We finally draw to the final clause of the mother question-  I don’t want to do engineering, I am interested in computers, should I take BCA course?

While Engineering is a tedious and a highly specialized course, BCA is quite unlike it. Therefore, Engineering naturally has more prospects and to better job posts and roles. However, BCA is not a bad option. It has its own perks and the jobs are specialized and, though with a lower salary than an engineer’s, are just as interesting to a computer and software enthusiast.

Therefore, “I don’t want to do engineering, I am interested in computers, should I take BCA course?” is a question of interest ( or disinterest). If the student wants to pursue BCA, the options are just as wide and bright.
